"HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY HEAVENLY ANGEL; MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!"

This tribute was added by Kenneth Hammons on 26th May 2016

"This day five years ago we sat in a hospital room in St. Petersburg and said good bye to a lovely angel. It was a special moment and a sad moment as we watched Mother breath her last breath. I'll never forget the special radiant light in that room and the special glow on her face.
Mom we love and miss you very much!!!"

"Mom -
it has been 5 years ago on this day since you answered The Lord's call home. But I imagine you hearing His call and asking Him if he would allow you to see me and smile at me just one more time before taking your journey home -- and Him saying "Yes My child". Then Him putting things in motion for me to get there. Through a six hour drive from Nashville, TN. back to Springfield - throught Lura and Janay making last minute flight arrangements in St. Louis -- through Tornado warnings and flight cancellations then finally making it in the last two seats on the last plane to Florida that evening -- through terminal closings in Fort Myers, the closest available airport. He kept the car rental places opened and available for us to actually rent a car to drive 2 hours to
St. Petersburg and still He allowed you to wait. Then when Janay and I finally arrived, you opened your eyes and smiled up at me. The Lord allowed the family and special friends to gather around you. And while we joined hands and I prayed over you --- you said "Thank You - Ok Lord" and quietly slipped away into His Loving Arms ----- That's Love.
I (we) love you Mom and you are "Forever Missed""
